I did not have that problem with the H&K 2000, but since standardizing on Glocks, I have that problem.
    I wear Seirus All Weather gloves when riding my Vulcan in the NC cold.
    Seirus Innovation They are warm enough to ride when temps are in the 40s (or below for short rides), but thin enough to efficiently pull the trigger on most guns.

    BTW, I wear my G27 in a C-Tac at 4:00 while riding (and BUG in ankle holster).

    I carry a Glock 19 in a IWB at 4:00. I don't want to take the chance of someone seeing me taking it out of a saddle bag.

    I use a IWB for my XDm, sits at 3:30 or 4:00 and is well hidden by my jacket. I am not to afraid of it going off if I drop the bike, the safties on that gun are increadible! I would be afraid of loosing it if it were straped inside my tank bag and it went flying off in an accident!

    I carry a snubnose revolver in an Alessi APX under my T-shirt. I kind of tuck my shirt in around it while riding, but before I get off the bike, I untuck my shirt, it's worked really well for me.

    I wear a pair of shooting gloves as my riding gloves, which I have worn while practicing with my carry guns.

    Hmmm... This makes me think (ouch!). I take off my gloves when not riding. In the winter I wear thin under gloves for layered warmth and those will stay on. Are we talking about trying to fire a weapon while riding? Personally I'm uncomfortable with that.

    I suppose there are exceptions to every rule but...

    Firing the handgun with the gloves on. I cannot think of a reason I would place priority in engaging a target above getting the heck out of the way and not run over.

    +1. Get the h--- out of the danger/kill zone quickly!!!!! The vehicle will win/take you out in a confrontation every time and I've been riding for 42 years.

    Sorry, must've killed too many brain cells in my youth...

    I see firing the handgun with the gloves on. and getting the he** out of there as two mutually exclusive things. I can't do both, only one or the other. Of course, if a fast exit is an option, I'll take it.

    Don't mind me. I'll just watch from the sidelines and hopefully catch on.

    I wasn't totally clear. If I had to draw immediately after getting off the bike, I would still need to rip my glove off if my glove and triggerguard did not play well together. Regardless, evasion is highest priority. If evasion not possible, get to cover and get ready to defend my position. Gun working with glove is one less step in getting ready to defend my position.

    Wear thinner gloves? I wear thin enough gloves that they fit in the trigger guard. Anyone practice shooting while wearing a helmet? I wear a full face , so this can effect my shooting a bit.

    Ah, gotcha. Yes, removing the glove is one more step, but one we have chosen. Whenever it's warm enough I wear fingerless gloves.

    My apologies to the OP for hijacking the thread.

    Don't think I'd want to go thinner on the gloves than I already have. Maybe this is a "reason" to go out and buy another handgun.

    Never tried shooting with my helmet on. Didn't even think too much of that one. God thought.
